The Prime Minister has announced an annual £150 million cash injection to school sport for pupils in England.

It is part of an initiative aimed towards improving sport provision in state primary schools, following the success of the London 2012 Games.

A primary school with 250 pupils would receive £9,250 per year, which is around two days a week of a primary teacher or a coach's time, according to Mr Cameron.

The Football Association, the England and Wales Cricket Board, the Rugby Football Union and Premier League have all backed the scheme.

The aim is to try and "create a culture" in schools that encourages all children to be active and enjoy sport.
